52 {C}CT August Colour Challenge

Another Saturday has rolled on by, folks. And that can only mean one thing ... time to play along with the girls at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown. This week,  our lovely hostess Gill Prescott is giving you a choice of 4 Colours - Silver, Gold, White and Cream .... oh how gloriously decadent, right?

Here's how I've used these colours:
(Metallic colours are not easy to photograph. Oh the blinding glare! The pictures are a little underexposed... but you get the idea.) 

I'm CAS with this one. Just some cream CS and silver metallic
paperfor layering. I've stamped the greeting from
WMS Say It Loud Winter Holiday with VersaColor Silver.

Here's a close-up. The ornaments are from WMS Vintage Ornaments
heat embossed in metallic gold EP and cut out with Spellbinders dies.
I also added some Opaque White Liquid Pearls and finished each ornament
with some stitching in cream and silver eyelets.

The sentiment s also from WMS Vintage Ornaments.

A few challenges for these baubles:

Cut It Up #51: Inspired By A Song - "Silver & Gold" - from the movie "Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer".

Now it's your turn to create a festive card based on this week's Colour challenge. In order to be considered for Top Honour and Honourable Mentions, your new card must follow the challenge sketch and you must link it to the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Challenge Blog by 6pm GMT / 1pm EST on Friday, 15th August. And here's the most important rule: Have Fun!

That's all from me today. Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a sunny weekend! We're off hiking later this evening to see the Supermoon ... exciting!

I'll leave you with the song that inspired this card. Here's a clip of "Silver and Gold" sung by Burl Ives in the movie "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" (1964) ...  an oldie and I love it!
